66 year-old, white trans woman Joann Sullivan at home in Titusville, Florida. Joann is single, retired and lives alone. "I did everything that we're supposed to do. I joined the Army, men are supposed to do that. I got married, men are supposed to do that. I have two kids, so you know I had sex with my wife at least twice." Joann is a lesbian woman from the United States. "On the outside I did the things that boys and men were supposed to do. This continued for 30 years until July of 1989. That first day in the hospital all my thoughts and actions of wanting to be a women came gushing out. That is now old history, but it was the day that I let my feelings out. It was the day that my new life began." Despite the gains in the movement, the current politics leave Joann feeling more threatened. "Since Donald Trump was elected in 2016, things, personally, I feel have changed quite a bit for me. I've felt a lot less secure. I've felt a lot more threatened.
